Tizen's app store gets demoed on video
It seems to be Tizen day today as after we got to see that leaked Samsung Tizen phone, we've now gotten introduced to the upcoming platform's app store as well. The application storefront has been demoed at the Tizen Developer Conference, and while it doesn't seem to be anything spectacular, it seems like a pretty decent platform for developers to offer their creations on.

Apart from the standard sections like featured apps and categories, there will also be a special section entirely dedicated to discounted apps, which will be extremely comfortable if one wants to easily find the titles that are temporarily available at a lower price. This will also be a great tool for developers to promote their apps.

Naturally, there won't be any immediate benefits for the ordinary users, seeing that Tizen OS phones are yet to hit the market, but developers can now start submitting their apps to the store using the source link below. The Tizen team promises that app evaluation will take up to three days.

Looks like an Android/iOS ripoff from the pictures.

More than 75% of all smartphones sold In Q1 2013 were Android-powered. So I think you mean android is THE 'shxt'.

Tizen may turn out to be a decent OS, but it has a really stupid name.

"Zen" would have been cooler name. Tizen sounds like a brand of laundry detergent or toilet bowl cleaner. However, I do like the pinwheel logo.

I know its early, so I don't want to be too harsh, but its not very attractive- especially with the solid light background. It doesn't seem to offer many visual clues on how to interact with it.

Tizen looks strong, with an interesting proposal, to be seen as he receives the market, but what you saw so far the new operating system looks promising.
